Trump and Kim were marking a historic moment as the first time a sitting U.S. president has met with a North Korean leader.

The two met one-on-one for just under 40 minutes before moving to an expanded meeting with other officials and a three-course working lunch.

Trump took a jab at the press earlier in the day, telling Kim, ”The press, they never stop," as the two sat down ahead of their meeting.

"I'll tell you when they're out," Trump said, referring to press in the room.
